Urge review and resignation of Sebastian Gorka, anti-Semitic US counter-terrorism adviser

This petition had 527 supporters

When one community in America is affected, all Americans are affected. Recently, we have seen a stark rise in hate-motivated actions and rhetoric towards various minority and religious groups here in the US, including the Jewish community. One way you can make a difference is to show your support for the American Jewish Committee by joining them in their efforts of urging United States President Donald Trump and the Trump administration to investigate and review chief counter-terrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka's anti-Semitic history. According to a report recently published by Lili Bayer of The Forward, a highly regarded Jewish media outlet formerly known as The Jewish Daily Forward, "In a video obtained by the Forward of an August 2007 television appearance by Gorka, the future White House senior aide explicitly affirms his party's and his support for the black-vested Hungarian Guard (Magyar Garda) - a group later condemned by the European Court of Human Rights for attempting to promote an 'essentially racist' legal order. Asked directly on the TV interview program if he supports the move by Jobbik, a far-right anti-Semitic party, to establish the militia, Gorka, appearing as a leader of his own newly formed party, replies immediately, 'That is so.' The Guard, Gorka explains, is a response to 'a big societal need.'" This is unacceptable and alarmingly dangerous and should be a concern not just for the Jewish community, but all Americans, as we stand as one. Please take the time to sign this petition in an attempt to bring as much attention to this issue as possible, with the ultimate objective of Gorka's resignation from this White House position. Thank you for your time.
